    Last year our tax refund was $10 more than it was this year, and after they allocated the funds my portion (the injured spouse) was $1400. This year my tax return was only $300!!! Why is there such a descrepency between the two refunds? Everything is the same, and I even claimed my son on my portion, and that is at least $1000 for the child tax credit! Any suggestions? Thanks!!!

    I have been waiting for 16 weeks…no word from IRS…no letters nothing. I have called several times..on June 10th they said the would need an additional 30 days..Called today that date isn’t up until the 13th of July. However, I should know something by then? Yeah like I believe that. Anybody else having this problem.

    can someone help my understand, my transcript is showing 766 reversal of refund applied to no irs tax debt with a negative $(whole amount of refund), after the IS claim received. the reversal date was 4-15-2015, and then a 290 additional tax assessed $0.00, the code on the 290 is 20151805, I have no notice issued or anything after that code. does the reversal mean I am getting that amount back? the Wheres my amended refund shows it was completed 4/24/15? im confused

    #4111603 Reply


    Tomorrow will be 13 weeks for me , my transcript shows they received my injured spouse on 1/27/15 , and I do not see any changes at all on the codes, if they even matter? Is it common for it to take this long? Where’s my refund also shows the offset only but no other information. My husband has past due child support and we both worked so I’m even wondering if I’m getting anything back at all.

    #4111595 Reply


    Wednesday makes week 9 and still stuck at 570 code and still no change on WMR I efiled return with IS form Feb 25 and it was accepted that day feeling really frustrated seeing people who filed the same day as me and some after and they got 846 codes with dd date called two weeks ago and was told they have 14 weeks to process it! The offset is my husbands I’m ready to be legally separated just so I don’t have to go through this again. This is my second year filing IS last year I didn’t do dd and got my refund in the mail one day before the 11th week…..IRS seems to be taking their sweet time this year!

    My battle is over! IRS check arrived today! 86 days after e-filing. I don’t think my situation was common (I really hope not) as we e-filed the Injured Spouse form with our taxes, and had to open a claim with both federal and state to re-process our papers to get my refund. If that had not happened, I would have gotten my money the last week of March.

    Really hope the best for all of you!

    #4111551 Reply


    So for the last 3 Friday’s I’ve checked my transcripts, and the date at the top has shown April 27th, then on Monday it reverts back to March 23rd. So today I called since yesterday was 8 weeks, and was told there was a back log, and basically wait another 30 days. I was like WHAT, it is being reviewed, but that was all she could say.

    Any thoughts or insights?

    #4111545 Reply


    I finally got my 846 code today YAY! Says Refund date May 11th, will it be that long or will I get it sooner? So excited lol!! Filed on 2-19 with the injured spouse form since I knew there was a problem going in.

    #4111538 Reply


    Finally after 10 weeks of back and forths my refund issued code 846 displayed on my transcript this morning. My expected refund date is May 11, 2015. Good luck to everyone who is still waiting.

    Brief summary

    IS filled with an amended return after offset and received by IRS on Feb 17. Amendment processed on April 6. Reversal codes processed on April 13 and 20. Refund issued code (today) with an expected deposit/ paper check dated of May 11, 2015.

    Wow – This tax season was rough but I will be prepared next year.

    If you owe student loans please call 1-800-304-3107 or your student loan organizations before you file next year.

    Well we received an unexpected surprise today – a portion of my state refund came! We filed 1/28, it was all taken mid-March (even with the IS form filed) We filed a claim to have our state (MN) re-process our information March 25, and today we received most of it back! No news on IRS check that was “mailed Monday” yet. Hopefully tomorrow!

    #4111483 Reply


    Opinions please.. I got my 846 code on Friday with a date of may 4. WMR still says it’s processing and my cycle code is 20151505. From the things I’ve read, I’ve got hope of a DD tomorrow. What does everyone think, from their experience, that I will have good news on the morning??!

    #4111482 Reply

    Tanya V

    Press 1, 2, 1, 4, 2, enter your ss#, press 1 when it prompts you, then 1 again to confirm ss#, then press nothing and it will transfer you. It’ll ask if you agree with the amount owed, press 1 – DON’T. You should hear hold music, and if the auto-voice comes back with “We’re sorry…” hang up and try again. We usually do this a few times before we get through, though we are generally calling between 8am – 10am. If you get through, it’ll start rambling on automated information, like filing forms, etc tax topics – that’s good, because you got through! Hold time is usually a half hour, though a few times it was around 1 hour. Good luck.

    Tomorrow makes 8 weeks….my transcript is still the 570 code…wmr is still saying processing :-( so relay for this to be over…filed everything February 25

    Tanya V, what number did you call??

    #4111474 Reply

    Tanya V

    My cycle code is 20151501 – which I thought meant this week but new posted forums say I should have gotten it last week (April 17). I called the IRS today and found out they mailed a paper check yesterday for whatever reason (she couldn’t see why it changed from DD, and the six people we spoke to from March 25 to today all said it would still be DD.) So I’ll just be watching the mail now. Hopefully your cycle code is for tomorrow.

    #4111470 Reply


    Tanya V, is your cycle code 20151505? That’s mine and I was hoping it meant tomorrow lol

    #4111453 Reply

    Tanya V

    I’ve read that the date by the 846 is the date you should have you money by, but it usually comes sooner (at least for DD.) My cycle date is set for this coming Wednesday so we’ll see, otherwise my worst-case scenario date is May 4.

    #4111432 Reply


    Had anyone received a 846 refund date and received their refund earlier then that date?? After 13 weeks I finally received an 846 code but the date is for mid-May!!! Any hope? Or is the reality that I will have indeed waited 4 months by the time I get my refund?

    Nevermind, I see your previous post says efile. You won’t see anything on your transcript.

    #4111399 Reply

    Tanya V

    Did you efile your IS form with your taxes or did you send it in via paper? Efile won’t show anything on your transcript, paper will give you a code 971 IS form received.

    #4111391 Reply


    My transcript doesn’t have anything on it regarding my injured spouse form. I have seen other people put things up regarding their transcripts and there is a specific “injured spouse form received” date… Does this mean my tax representative did mine wrong and my taxes will go to my husband’s debt now??!! It should have been filed with my taxes the same day I filed ( 2\14)

    #4111377 Reply

    Tanya V

    @ Carmelia
    It never hurts to call and see what’s up. Mine took forever to update past code 570, roughly 2 months. Sometimes there’s an error or something silly on the account and getting a rep to look at it can help move it along.

    @ Chrissy
    Your refund was offset (sent to pay a debt). It shows that the injured spouse form was received, so now you’re waiting for someone to re-open your case and do it again, to see what money, if any, should go to you (or your spouse). It could be another 8-11 weeks from the date the IRS accepted your IS form (general guideline). You should start to see more codes as the weeks pass (generally IS filers transcript update mid-Friday mornings). You’ll be looking for a code that says it’s a reversal of refund applied to non-irs debt (that *should* be the amount of money you’ll get back) and then you’ll have to wait for another 846 (release code) to appear. Good luck!

    @ V Hart
    Any news?! I’m so eager to hear that your refund was deposited today! I was super hopeful mine would magically appear today, as the last time it was released on Friday, deposited the following Wednesday (incorrectly offset, though) but my cycle date is next week so HOPEFULLY :D

    I filled my taxes electronically with the IS form on Feb 14. According to my transcripts it was accepted on March 16, and nothing had changed since then… Should I be calling or is it normal that I’m still waiting for any type of movement??! This is the longest I have ever waited and not my first year filling an IS…

    @V Hart- Great news.

    So my transcripts updated and I finally received a reversal code. I am still waiting for the other student loan offset to come back but i am glad that I am seeing some movement. Maybe next week I will have the 846 code (Next week is 8 weeks for me) and my tax advocate stated that they will be mailing my check in 2 weeks. Finally – I will keep you all posted.

    #4111262 Reply


    So I have been following this forum for some time now…I had to file IS, which was received on 2/26. This information at the top is dated March 23rd. I checked it yesterday, and it updated to April 27th. Initially was wondering how it could update into the future, then I checked it this morning and it is back to the March 23rd date. 8 weeks will be April 23rd, so wondering if anyone else has had an updated like that revert back?

    That is good news! When we got our 846 codes, the account balance went to $0 too – and it’s back in the negative now that we’re waiting for the funds to be released again.

    What’s your new cycle code? Maybe that’ll help figure out when you should see your $$$

    @tanya V- Yes! I have a code 290- $0 and a code 846- $-XXXX.XX (entire refund amount), my account balance also says $0 now…not sure if this means I get my entire refund amount and when I should expect my money?

    #4111243 Reply

    Tanya V

    No update on my transcript today, so my husband and I both called the irs again. Roughly 20 min hold each, so not bad. My lady said I should get the refund within 3-4 weeks, and if not gotten by the first week of may, to call back. I should also be receiving a notice soon of the new adjusted refund. Husbands rep said that our claim is almost done and we should get the refund very soon, but couldn’t provide an actual date.

    Anyone else get any (good) news? V Hart – anything?

    Woke up this morning and attempted to get on my transcripts. Haha to my surprise the system was down. I will try to get on there this afternoon. Praying for an update.

    So… I finally gave up because it’s still stuck on code 570 and I called the tax advocate and told them my college classes will drop me if I don’t pay…they took a look into my account and told me that my refund has been adjusted as of April 2nd and it may take 2-3 weeks to process but my battle should be over real soon and if I don’t have the money by the 13th to call them back. A tax advocate will be in touch with me in a few days.

    2nd time around

    This year we filed again thinking since I was enrolled in a rehab program for my student loan we wouldn’t be offset but we were. efiled on 1/30 refund date was set for 2/19 when it wasn’t deposited we filed Injured Spouse form. It was received 3/3/15 code 971. 766 code was posted about two weeks later with a 4/15 date. I continued to check every week and received a 971 code for notice issued around 3/19. The next Tuesday received the letter. checked following week and there was a 846 code for refund with date of 4/13 cycle 20151205. I got my check in the mail yesterday! Much faster this year but we are now on the west coast and form was sent to the California branch. Not sure if the speed was due to that or the fact that it was our second time and I was enrolled in the rehab program for my loan. Hope everyones progress is as smooth as mine was this year and for those waiting forever maybe next year will be better.

    2nd time around

    Last year our taxes were offset for my student loans that I did not know were defaulted because we moved and never received notices. Anyway, after the IRS site said refund deposited 2/12/14 we called our bank to check on our deposit and nothing. Finally was informed of offset, sent in Inured Spouse form mid March and after the 8 weeks we called and they said they were behind and we should contact an advocate. Didn’t receive our refund until mid July, it was the full amount but it took forever! Sidenote we sent it to the Kansas branch as we were living down south.

    Wow, more odd news on my transcript. It appears to have updated this morning, with another reversal of refund, additional tax assessed, and another notice sent. New cycle date, appears to be April 13 now instead of April 9. I’m happy that I should be getting money back, but I really have no idea what’s going on or how much longer it’ll take.

    It updated Saturday morning, which I thought was odd. And now it updated again Tuesday morning.

    Congrats!.. kind of :) Sorry they forgot to finish your refund but awesome that you’ll be getting it back soon!

    #4111117 Reply


    If you still have a 570 code call he irs. I filed on 1/29 and still 570 code so I finally got through today and the irs rep said the form was recieved and couldnt understand why the money hasnt been released. Transferred me to the IS department and the person who worked my case just never entered the codes to release our refund!!!! So she reviewed everything with me and released it herself. Thank god I called! BTW they were all very nice!

    Congratulations @ Tanya V.

    Did you new codes happen last night on Thursday night? I am hoping that they update mine next week b/c we need the money.

    Just a heads up guys. I have the cycle code of 20150605 and just got my 846 today. We filed on February 4 and got an 846 with a date of 4/20. I hope this helps. Good luck to everyone who is still waiting.

    I had three transcript updates since yesterday morning:
    766 Reversal of refund applied to 04-15-2015 -$HIDDEN
    non-IRS debt
    290 Additional tax assessed 20151401 04-27-2015 $0.00
    971 Notice issued 04-27-2015 $0.00

    These appeared overnight, after the two 898 codes. I’m hoping I’ll see the money soon.

    #4111088 Reply


    Well I am still waiting for my refund as well. The IRS received it on 2/17/15 and according to my tax advocate (yes I called to get one) it should be sent to me within the next 2 weeks. I will keep you updated but I have not had any movement on my transcripts for 2 weeks. The last codes that I received were 971- Notice Issued – 4/6/2015 and 971- Injured Spouse Received – 2/17/15. At least I know that I am getting something back – they kept his portion for his student loans but it just seems unfair that they can take it the same day that you are supposed to get it but I have to wait 8 or more weeks to get the money back.

    Maybe next week I will have anupdate for you all.

    @tanya V- I have no clue, they sent me to the IRS even after I complained about not being able to pay for college and being dropped.

    Anyways, after speaking to her she gave me the regular speech on it takes 11 weeks, blah blah blah, she said they didn’t get it till the 5th of feb, that’s the third date I’ve heard. She said that it can take till April 17th and people have been working on it. They worked on it yesterday.

    How hard is it to see I made 100% of the income?

    There has been zero update on my transcripts.

    This is so freakin irritating, I am about to be dropped from my college classes due to inability to pay for this semester!

    I filed January 29th and was accepted the same day.

    Still stuck at code 570.

    My husband has to pay for his classes by May 26th or he will be dropped.

    We have five kids so it’s not that easy to just give money to colleges.

    Still no news. I called the IRS today, as instructed to do last Friday – and they couldn’t provide me any information besides that the claim to get my portion of injured spouse that they incorrectly offset is pending. We both waited well over an hour on the phone, my husband was told it should be reviewed and reprocessed soon, and mine said it could take 3-4 weeks. Funny how you could issue and release the refund last Wednesday and the debt was taken immediately, but giving back my portion due to IRS error is taking more than a week! /Rant

    If it helps:
    Efiled w/ IS form 1/28 (accepted too)
    Transcript updated 3/20 w/ both 846 codes
    Both Fed refunds taken 3/25
    File claim to get my portion back 3/27
    Transcript did not update anything this Friday, here’s to hoping for news next Friday. Best of luck to everyone else waiting for their $$$ :)

    So i have been following this page for some time now, it has been one of the only thing to keep me sane during this whole ordeal! So far i have had the reversal code of 766 with our entire refund amount beside it and the 290 code with 0.00 beside of that. NO 846 code yet !! My cycle codes have changed to 20151105 and the dates for the 290 and 766 codes have 4/6/2015 beside them as well. My IS form was originally received on 2/12. The offset is mine for defaulted student loans. i did not work any last year and the entire income was that of my husbands. So with all that being said can someone give me some insight i have seen other people with the same codes and cycle dates receiving refunds. Up until yesterday every time i have called in to the irs i have gotten nothing we have all we need nothing is wrong just wait blah blah blah! I called yesterday and all of a sudden this not so pleasant or knowledgeable lady says that there is a 4 week hold on my account until April 17th. when i asked her why she said that’s just what the computer does and that my claim was completed therefore there was no “real” person to speak to as that there is no one handling my claim anymore. So i called back today spoke with a mr coleman and he said there was a split refund he could see but it was still my entire amount. he wasn’t able to explain any further what that meant only that i should possibly call the bureau of fiscal services. So I asked about a tax advocate and he told to contact one. So i did… never got to speak to an advocate per say but was told that there was “RO” on my account which meant rolling???? was told to call back next friday of there had been no change that means it may be unpostable?? I know this is long but someone PLEASE HELP!! Does this sound familiar to anyone or has it happened to anyone else?? Im trying to be patient but getting the runaround is getting old very quick!

    You can call (800)829-0582 ext. 652. That is the number I just called and you have to hold for awhile (15-30 minutes) but you should be able to talk to a person that way.

    I figured out how to get our transcripts and it says Return due date April 15th and Processed date March 16th. Does this mean I’m getting my return on the 15th??

    #4110946 Reply


    We submitted our taxes on 2/18 with the injured spouse, I have tried calling the IRS many times to see if they have a date for our return and when I get to the point where it says hold to speak with someone it tells me based on the call volume that there isn’t anyone who can speak with me and to try again later, what am I doing wrong?? Can someone please let me know which number is best to call and what numbers to push to get someone? lol. Also with submitting them on 2/18 how much longer do you think we’ll have to wait? thanks so much!!

    When should I call the tax advocate helpline? I have been trying to reach a person for days and every time I call it says the call volume is too large and they cant accept my call at this time and to call back at another time.

    @Tatiana Kimberley

    If you sent the first two copies of your 1040, then you did file a duplicate return. When you send the IS form in you are only suppose to attach your W-4 and or 1099 forms to it, not any part of your 1040 return. I would give them a call. Explain what happened and ask what, if anything you need to send them.

    Just wanted to post an update… Great news, I got my refund check in the mail today!!!! I filed my original return on Jan 28th excepted same date. Original refund was supposed to be dd on Feb 3rd, but my husband had a debt that took all of it. Files IS form and it was received on Feb 9th. Last week I was told my check would be ailed on Friday March 27th. Got it today on March 31rst……Good luck everyone…

    Hoping someone can help me out!!!!! I filed my IS form by regular mail and now my 2014 transcript is not showing up, the prior years have a little star next to them but on my return transcript for 2014 I just got a new code that says “duplicate return filed”. I’m a little confused because I didn’t submit a duplicate just the IS form and I believe what they asked for was the first 2 pages of my 1040. Has this happened to anyone else? Any info would be greatly appreciated!!!!

    #4110908 Reply


    Just a final update ..I received my check in the mail yesterday, which is exactly 7 weeks from the date my IS form was received by the IRS. All of my transcript info is listed below in a post from 3/23, in case it helps anyone. Good luck to everyone still waiting on their $$.

    #4110901 Reply


    @Jamon April 2, will be two months since they received your IS form, which means at least eight weeks. They have eight weeks to process the form once it is received, when you mail it in. I would call if you don’t get an update to your transcripts by Friday. I mail my form in every year and have had it take anywhere from 4 1/2 weeks to 11 weeks to get my refund. The 11 week timeframe was when the person working on my form just neglected to release the refund, they didn’t finish the process, so you really should call soon.

    #4110897 Reply


    So I efiled and found out my wife’s student loans were gonna offset our refund. She made no income this year so I filed an injured spouse forum through the mail. My transcripts show up with a 971 Injured Spouse received on 2/2. This has been the only activity on my transcripts in two months. Is this normal? Also, why is it that other people are getting it before me if they have received dates later than me? Does anyone know the order method? Should I be worried that I did something wrong when filling the form out? Thanks in advance.

    Woke up to some icky news this morning. Both the 846 amounts that posted last Friday were updated today to be towards the offset. With losing all of my state refund, I didn’t let this one slide. My husband and I both spent over 2 hours each on the phones, calling the IRS, Dept of Edu, and the debt collector. FINALLY got to a gentleman who told us that the larger of the two 846 amounts was supposed to be refunded to me on March 25 – but both actually posted to the Dept. of Edu as payments. He was rather upset at their mistake and now has to re-open and process our taxes to get us our refund. Maximum of a 3 week wait, but heck, I’ll take that for a few grand back. Also found out I can file a claim to get half of my state refund back too, since we’re a non-community state and the only debt is for my husband. So, good news kinda.

    Best wishes to all others waiting for update. My WMR has not updated once since losing all bars beginning of Feb.

    So, I received a paper from Turbo Tax stating that they did not have enough funds to cover my charges for tax preparation so I need to pay them before April 3rd. It said that I had an offset and after the taxes were applied to it there just wasn’t enough to cover it.

    I then called the irs because I do not live in a community property state, my husband did not earn any of the income and they told me that it was sent to the IS department and at someones desk t be worked on.

    Still a code 570.

    after my 766 reversal refund code my account balance came back with a (-)X,XXX and after they entered the 846 refund issue code it went back to 0.00. SO it is my understanding that your refund was approved and it is what they owe you, or need to release to you. Once you get the 846 code it will go back to 0.

    @ Pam

    I just looked that up and by the account balance it has a (-) sign and then what my return should have been. But I am sure she is exactly right. They already got my payment for his student loans on his account. So they will have to get that money back from them. I am really hoping that next week I get the code to where they will send the check the next week. But when all of this first started and I called his student loan place they told me that once they were informed that they would have 3 weeks to send the check out. I thought they meant that when they got the info that I was supposed to get it that the student loan place would send the check out to me. But the next time they said that the check would be coming from the IRS. So, I may still have a 3-4 week wait. I checked and it still shows the payment from my taxes, but does not show them sending it back to the IRS yet. I hope all of that makes sense and I will check the student loan stuff again tonight when I get off work. Good luck to everyone waiting for good news today!

    Oops sorry Amy! Reading too many posts.
    TY for info. I am glad to hear that it’s been processed and will EVENTUALLY be on its way. Have a great day!

    #4110826 Reply


    @Pam- I am not Tina, but my tax advocate said that the reason it is not issued the same day is if the debt was already intercepted. It was in my case so they had to get that money back first before it could be issued as a refund. I had that negative amount for a week. Today I updated to the refund issued.

    #4110825 Reply



    I just got the same codes as you today. Up in the top left corner is says “account balance” with a -$0000.00 amount. Does yours say the same? Do you know if that means that that amount is what’s definitely going to be issued soon? Not sure why it wasn’t issued same day as most other peoples were.

    #4110822 Reply


    @ ALJ

    I did get some of my other codes today when I checked. I got the 766 reversal of refund with the date of 4-15-15, the 290 additional tax assessed and 2nd 971 notice issued dated 04-13-15.

    #4110821 Reply



    Well I did not have a reversal code as of 6:45 AM this morning but my amended return has been adjusted and I was told that the notice issued – just a letter telling me hey now you owe us money but she stated that my injured spouse should be completed within the next 2 weeks (8 week countdown from Feb 17). Anyway I am still waiting just don’t understand why it takes so long to determine who paid what -credits etc…

    Maybe next week I will have the reversal code and refund issued statement.

    #4110785 Reply



    Thank you, I have been reading this page almost every day to see how fast it is going but wasn’t sure if it was from the date you sent it or they posted that they received it. I just looked at my transcript this week. Let us know if it updates. I will check on Friday and post again.

    #4110783 Reply


    Well still nothing. I know when I filed the IS form that it would take 8 to 11 weeks but now that people are slowly getting their money I am getting annoyed. Filed the 29th and accepted the day after. I efiled the IS form with my return. Bars left mid February. I have been stuck with a 570 code for weeks now!! What number can I call to check on this?

    #4110782 Reply



    I was told to count 6 – 8 weeks from when they received your injured spouse form. The IRS received my Injured Spouse on Feb. 17 and my transcripts show the 971 code received 2-17-2015. I am now on my fifth week so hopefully I will see code 766 – reversal of refund applied to non-irs debt and code 846 – refund issued on my transcripts this Friday March 27, 2015.

    I will let you know on Friday if there was any movement on my account.

    #4110771 Reply


    This is my first year filing the IS form because our refund was offset for my husband’s student loans. All of the income was mine. I efiled the 10th or 11th of Feb. When I realized there was going to be an offset I mailed the IS form on Feb13th. My transcript says that the IS claim was received 3-12-15 with the 971 code. So my questions are: Is that the date that I count 6-8 weeks from? Or how long should I expect it to take to see my refund from there? And has anyone received theirs faster than the 6 weeks from the claim received date? Sorry I am so confused, I have tried figuring this out but this is rough with it being the first time to do this.

    I finally have a date for when my refund will be sent! I discovered this forum this year and am glad I stumbled upon it. Good luck to those still waiting on their refunds and just in case it helps anyone, I am posting my info below …

    I live in Texas and have been filing IS for the last 4 years. The first year I filed the form via mail , the next two I efiled with my return and this year via priority mail separate from my return. Prior to this year I have received my refund anywhere from 9-11 weeks after filing. Last year a “1800# Irs rep” told me it took longer when you file with your return because it has to be sent to a separate department for processing so I mailed it the day after I efiled my return.
    Efiled return – 2/5 via TAXACT; return accepted 2/6
    IS form mailed priority mail @ post office 2/6

    At least there is movement but are they going to reverse the debt since I reported additional income (mine) or will his student loans keep all of the money (my W2 holding,my student loan payments, our child credits). Very frustrating

    I just know that from now on I am filling the form with my taxes.

    #4110552 Reply


    @jeff, I’m certainly not an expert on this since this is my first time filing the IS. But if yours goes like mine you should receive your 846 refund update on your transcript next Friday morning. Then you can call and they will tell you the date the check will be mailed. Hopefully your wait will soon be over…Good luck…

    #4110551 Reply



    I efiled my return and then found out the after i was supposed to get my refund that it was offset so i filed out an IS form and mailed it in it was received on feb 11. so it the 21 of march and as of yesterday i got the 766 code for reversal of non irs debt so now i guess it still the waiting game on when they will let me know when they will release the money

    #4110550 Reply


    I am just posting my experience with filing an IS for the first time. I first filed on Jan 28th and was accepted that day. My original refund was supposed to be deposited on Feb.3. Instead they took it all for my husband’s debt. I faxed my IS form on Feb.2. I called the IRS and was told that you couldn’t fax the IS so I sent in another one by mail. After I waited about 3 weeks my transcript updated to IS form received on Feb 2. The following week it updated again to IS form received on Feb 9. So I found out that they had indeed received my faxed IS form on Feb. 2nd. That day I called the IRS to find out if sending the second form would put my refund behind any , I was told no at the time. This was not true. First lesson, you can indeed fax an IS form. At this time the WMR was saying that my refund had been applied to a non IRS debt. I checked my transcript on March 13th and it had updated to 766 reversal. Then I checked again on March 20th and got my 846 refund code with an as of date of April 6th. I called the IRS ad they told me that a check would be sent out on March 27th. I just checked WMR and it had updated to your refund is being processed with the original amount of my refund. So I am very happy. I was the only one who worked because my husband is disabled, so I get it all back…. Just wanted to let everyone who is waiting for news on their refunds know how it went for me so far. My fingers are crossed that my check comes to me rather swiftly…LOL, just glad hat this wait is almost over.. Good luck to everyone else out there.

    I’m not exactly sure what 290 means but it seems to be a normal thing for IS filers to get. 971 means you’ll get something in mail – possibly – which might request additional information or to inform you that they’ll be an offset. 570 means that they are processing your return – usually the IS form gives you the 570. I’ve seen that this code can pop up for so many reasons, sometimes at times where nothing special is really happening. Did you eFile you return/IS or did you mail them?

    #4110545 Reply


    I got the 290 additional tax assessed code with a cycle date of 20151105 with 0.00 what dose that mean anyone know? Also i got a 971 Notice issued what will this notice talk about? I still have no 570 code. Do i have to have the 570 code to get my refund?

    #4110523 Reply

    V Hart

    Congrats @tanya V.. I did not get my codes at all.. It’s still a 570 for me…UGH so frustrating. I did get my state taxes and I received all of them because this is a non-community state…so I’m hoping for the same as far as federal and wish this would just hurry up.

    #4110522 Reply

    Tanya V

    Yes, all three codes (270, 846, 846) came today. I’ve been at a standstill with the 570 since beginning of Feb.

    I have no idea. I think the date is when we should have it by?

    Tanya, I got the same thing on mine, but the last update on the page is this:
    290 Additional tax assessed 20151105 04-06-2015 $0.00

    And there is no 846 Refund issued at this time. Did both of those codes, 290 and 846 come for you at the same time, or were they different days? Thanks!

    It is! I don’t live in a community property state either. I wasn’t given any explanation, just that I could file a claim to have the IS dept of the state recheck our return. I’m hoping they can give me something. We both made income last year – I made way more than him, since I worked the full year vs him working around half year.

    #4110500 Reply


    @tanya V

    That is really scary! My husband made all of the income this year, and 3k of the return went towards my student loans, we don’t live in a cps so I have been assuming we would get back some if not all of the return. I REALLY hope this doesn’t happen, was there an explanation given at all as to why they took all of it? Did you both make income this year?

    #4110481 Reply

    Tanya V

    Not sure. I called to ask about it, and the rep couldn’t tell me why. I explained our situation so she put in a claim for the actual IS dept of our state to re-check our return. I thought I’d at least get my portion back.. isn’t that the point of filing IS?! I hope your wait isn’t too much longer.

    Looks like your IS is still processing – that’s what the 570 code means. All the other codes are normal. The processing date and the cycle code don’t really mean much when you file IS (at least from what information I can find) but generally those are the dates you should expect your refund to be done. Right now you’re waiting for a 971 (if you mailed in your IS form) or an 846 (refund issued) code. I think there is another one for what portion your offset will be.. but I don’t recall what that one is. Check you transcript online mid-late morning on Fridays, as that’s when it appears that our transcripts are updated.

    I have no idea – hopefully someone else here has some knowledge of that issue?

    What codes are on your transcript? They mean something, but it’s not always the same as what another person’s means, even with the same codes. They can give you an idea of what’s going on.

    My story

    So we efiled with Jackson Hewitt – accepted same day 1/28/2015. Went home realized all income was not accounted for so we had to amend return(which I had to mail in). We had a DDD of 2/11/15 but I was shocked (nice word) to find out that all of our refund would be sent to my husband’s student loans. So instead of just filing an amended return (which caused us to owe money back to the IRS) I also had to file the injured spouse.

    I am being patient but it has been 8 weeks since we Efiled and 5 weeks since the IRS in California received my Injured spouse claim and amended return. I called the other day and I was told that it would take 12 – 16 weeks (LOL) before all of my paperwork is processed but I called back and a different representative told me 6 – 8 weeks. We will see who is telling the truth but I am praying that we will see a paper check in 3 weeks.

    I live in Ohio – not a community property state so hoping that they only keep his “portion” to pay back on his loans.

    Tanya, why did they keep some of the return if the loans are you husbands?

    #4110475 Reply

    Tanya V

    Bummer :(
    I received a letter today that even with the IS filed, that they will be taking the entire state refund towards my husband’s student debt. I was so excited last week when it updated online and said we were going to be issued our entire amount, because I spoke with the state at the beginning of the month and they said it was taking longer because we filed IS and that they were processing how much, if any, to take out for his debt. :/ I guess that’s just under $3K less that we have to pay back now, but I wouldn’t have paid someone $300 to file for me if all my refunds would be taken anyway. Praying for good news tomorrow – and for all of you!

    #4110463 Reply


    My transcript updated to code 976 – duplicate filed Last week. Did anyone get this code before getting the 846 refund code or should I be worried?

    I have all the same stuff as you, except I filed/accepted 1/28. From what I could find, you’ll only see the 971 (IS form received) if you paper mailed it. Best wishes for an update for you Friday morning – it’s been a long wait!

    @V Hart
    I live in a non-community state too. When I called my state regarding my refund, I was told that it was just being held up by the IS form (it said it would be done by 3/4, but then changed that day to still processing with no date). We have been in contact with my husband’s student federal debt and they say they aren’t going to take any money, since we’ve been paying. Maybe that’s why our full state refund is expected? We’ll see soon, or at least by the 27, I hope. Good luck to you! I hope we all get good news soon :)

    Hey @tanya V- I too got my full amount from state and my wages is now showing on mine too, but no change in the code 570 on my transcripts ugh. You mentioned that you got your full amount from state, this is my first year filing IS… I was curious, since I live in a non-community state, and 100% of the income was mine, am I most likely to get back 100% of the refund?

    #4110389 Reply


    Filed 1/29 and accepted the next day. Shortly after bars left in WMR. I am STILL showing 570 – additonal information pending 2/23/2015. Is this my IS form pending? Should I be calling the IRS? I know a few people said that they seen their IS form was accepted. I do not see anything except the the normal two codes then the 570.

    My state refund updated today that it was completed with the full amount still listed – said direct deposit by 3/27. I also noticed my IRS transcript Wages is now available – is this good news? Should I get excited for possibly 846 code this Friday?

    Still no changes on account transcript in regards to codes or cycle date.

    #4110320 Reply


    Anyone with a cycle date of 20150605 received anything? My transcript has not updated for at least 3 weeks and I’m getting frustrated. I know this process takes forever, but that doesn’t stop the frustration. This is my 5th year filing IS and you would think they would have something in place for this. I guess that’s just thinking logical and when it comes to the IRS there is nothing logical….

    #4110269 Reply



    Yes, that amount is what you will be getting back, I have been filing IS for a few years now and looked back at my other transcripts and once they are done processing , you’ll see two refunds issued, one with that $ amount and the other that says refund issued to the non-irs debt.

    #4110264 Reply


    Finally some movement on my transcript… it says “Reversal of Refund Applied to Non-IRS Debt” and then it has a (small) dollar amount beside it. Is THIS all I am getting back?

    I also have the 290 with the same cycle date. I called the 1-800.. ext.652 today and was told my IS would be completed next week and refund issued the following week. He said to allow 2 wks for the check to come, so… 3-4 wks before ck is received. Not sure how accurate this is but that would be 8 weeks from when my IS form was received.

    Idk if you all are noticing a trend, but most of us filed on or around 1/29 and have a cycle date of 20150505 and DDD of 2/23. None of us have seen and update and we are all frozen on code 570…..

    Please tell me that you all are seeing this too? I feel like our taxes are stuck and our IS forms are stuck and held.

    People after us are getting their returns.

    This is also my first year filing and it’s been HELL and a nightmare. I always file the first day I can file…. ugh maybe the couples credit isn’t worth it and I’ll file separated next year…better to have less money than go through this torture.

    Received an update from the IRS today. since my transcript has not shown any movement. I spoke with a very nice lady – one who could finally help! She looked up my account and told me that the IRS received my IS form on 02/05, even though I filed, what I thought with my tax return on 01/31. Apparently, my software provider sent this form separately from my tax return. She said since the IS form was received separately, it would take approximately 8 weeks from the date they receive it to process my return. She said a letter was sent to me on the 9th of March. The letter was probably in regards to an offset (which I already knew). In all, that I should receive the remaining amount of my refund by 04/02. It could be sooner (sure hope so).

    Today, my transcript is showing cycle 20150505 still, and the 570. No updates to my transcript as of yet. At least I know that things are moving.

    Just an overall, update….
    The debt is mine, Student Loans, I did not work this year, my husband made all of the money.
    We do not live in a community property state.
    I am not sure if that is the reason our refund came quicker than other participants.
    I did notice a trend on some facebook posts that IS transcripts are normally updates on Fridays… I don’t know if that is actually true, but it seems most I see/talk to on facebook, had an update on transcripts fridays.

    I am REALLY hoping that other participants start seeing forward movement in their refunds.

    Keep the Faith!

    This is our first year filing IS and what a pain it has been! We e-filed via Turbo Tax on 1/30 and have a cycle code of 20150505 and processing date of 02/23/2015. I was able to confirm that they had recived our IS form and that it was in the IS department, but was unable to get any additional information and they told us not to call back before 4/27. There have been no changes on our transcript and we lost the bar on WMR weeks ago. I’m not a particularly patient person and this is driving me mad. Hope we start seeing some changes soon as it seems like there have been some refunds coming to those with 02/23/2015 processing dates, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we’ll see some change soon. I know this is just a rant, but it seems like there are a lot of us in the same slow-moving boat!

    Just an update, eFiled with IS through Turbo Tax on 1/29, accepted the same day. cycle code 20150505.
    Stuck on 570 with processing date of 2-23 FOREVER… Last Friday, Transcripts updated with my 846 code with a new code of 20150905.
    Today My refund was deposited into my bank.
    This was only my 2nd year filing IS, last year was paper, did not realize there was an offset until after processing it took 11 weeks.
    This year 5 1/2 weeks.
    I hope everyone else gets 846’s soon, the first round is on me….. Cheers!

    Sharon, no, my transcript does not show code 971. I’m just stuck at the 570. It shows it was to be processed on 3-02-2015. A relative of mine (who efiled thru turbotax also) is stuck at code 570 as well and it shows hers was to be processed on 2-23-2015. So far, nothing seems to be happening as far as processing goes.

    Like most of you, I am stuck with the 570 code. I efiled thru turbotax on 1/29 and included the IS form. This is my 6th year having to file the IS form but my 1st year efiling it. With mailing it in, it always took 5 weeks to get a DD. 5 weeks has come and gone and I don’t think I will ever efile it again. I don’t understand the order in which the IRS processes these forms as others who filed after me have already received their refund.

    Just so people know there is hope.

    E-filed my IS claim with my return on 2/2.

    My transcript has a cycle of 20150905 with an 846 refund issued code.

    WMR updated today stating my refund should be deposited 3/11.

    Just some background on my WMR status. It had changed a few weeks ago from showing the status bar to just having a statement that I would be notified when the refund was sent.

    Today I have the status bar back showing approved and giving me the refund date.

    I spoke with some guy yesterday from the IRS, he told me that my taxes were accepted on the 29th of January as well as the IS. That’s the day we filed our taxes and submitted the IS. The rude lady before that told us it was accepted the 2nd. So we will see our taxes from the 13th-20th sometime.

    I don’t live in a community state, so I’m assuming I get all of my taxes back. I made 100% of the income.

    #4109860 Reply


    I don’t understand the method they use to process these forms. I know it depends on who processes your claim, but how do they dole them out to the processors? Is it by state, social security numbers, last names? Is it computerized or do they get the actual forms handed to them? I have nightmares of our form being on the bottom of an in box somewhere, and all the new forms get heaped on top of it.
    One would think that it was computerized. And as an agent finished one form, the next form in line would pop up, but I don’t think that’s how it’s done.
    I have seen so many people on here that submitted everything after us, and who have already either seen refunds or at least the 846 code.
    I looked back 4 years, and every single one of ours was completed on the last possible day in the 11th week time frame. Almost as if they held it to that day.
    My return was accepted on Tuesday February 6th. I efiled thru turbo tax, and included the IS form with it. I’m stuck on Cycle date 20150505 and -2/23/2015.

    Hey there fellow IS filers! So my husband filed via turbotax on January 26th and then on February 4th his whole refund(9k) was offset to pay my unpaid student loans(i haven’t worked in 2 years) from before we were even married. So after some research we found out about the injured spouse form so on February 9th he went down to our local IRS office and filled it out without attaching anything(w2…) and turned it in that same day. After 1 week he found out you can check transcripts online and there was nothing on there about the IS form even being received so on February 23 he called and spoke to an IRS agent who said yes it had been received 2/9 and give it 6-8 weeks. Then on 2/27 the transcript finally updated to 971 IS received. On 3/6 the transcript gave code 846 refund issued cycle 20150905 they did keep around 1800$ which i am assuming from what we have read is minus the married tax break but at least we finally know money is coming this way thank God lol. We do live in California a community property state

    Injured spouse completion is still running about 6 to 9 weeks to get it.I called on it recently.Mine was received on the 9th of February.Expected they said between 4/9 and 4/30.There ‘s pretty much nothing else you can do.Problem is with they IRS, they dont care if you owe the debt or not.Ours was set off for back support, but it was not owed cause I had it modified last year.So see they still took it anyway, now I have to suffer for their mistakes and failure to investigate the issues or owed debts.

    I was wondering about the tax advocate too… I’ve read other forums where it really helped people to receive their state and/or federal refund a lot faster.

    I called the IRS today and fibbed a little to get them to actually check my account. They accepted my return 1/28 as I expected, and apparently my refund has been processed and approved, just waiting on IS to figure out if and what amount they are taking. He said everything looked okay on our account and no notices, but that it could take around 11 weeks from 1/28 – and to call back if no word or deposit by then. So kinda good news.. right?

    #4109701 Reply


    MaryR- When did you mail in your injured spouse form? I spoke to an IRS rep earlier this week about my status as well. My refund was taken on 2/4. He stated once the return was completed and you mailed in the injured spouse claim that they had 8 weeks to process it. I had inquired about a tax advocate. He was trying to convince me not to call them. He said something about they wouldn’t want to work with that deadline, because it would have to be done within a month and probably wouldn’t want to expedite it for just a cycle or two. I haven’t called them, because I wanted to see if my transcripts updated tomorrow. I could have sworn that the admin Stargazer had an injured spouse form and a TA, so I think they do help with injured spouse forms. I don’t know as this is my first year ever having to file as an injured spouse.

    My husband and I are in the process of dealing with the IS situation. We are currently facing foreclosure (and our refund will help avoid that). When we called the advocate to inquire about expediting the IS claim due to hardship, she said she had no idea what we were talking about and that she can’t help us. She said “things have changed” and they can’t help us or accept an application due to “external debt”. They’ve already offset our refund. According to another person at IRS, we are eligible for IS, but the advocate says she can’t help us. Anyone else ever in this situation?!

    I haven’t gotten any updates with the codes on my transcript and no update on WMR. Haven’t been able to get help through the IRS. I think I will call the tax advocate line tomorrow again and see if I can say I have a hardship because we do have 5 kids…idk if that matters. I doubt it.

    As far as my state return, I am getting it back after emailing the states advocate advising them that I have 5 kids, I need my money and it’s not fair that they are trying to keep my money a bit longer to draw more interest on it. The same day he emailed back advising the funds have been released and will be sent this week. Kansas Dept of Rev. updated their site today and I get my full amount back (offset was applied to that too but the debt is my husbands).

    Now, it’s a waiting game with federal and I need it before June.

    No news today. Our state refund said ever since 1/28 that it was accepted and being processed, that it should be complete by 3/4 – today it switched messages to just saying processing and to call a number if help was needed. I called and was told the refund was fine, no issues or notices sent, just that it could take up to 90 days (and our state refund usually always takes around 2 months anyway).

    Regarding our federal return…
    Called the Offset # 800-304-3107 and instead of entering a SS#, we were transferred to a rep who said they have no paperwork or anything from the IRS yet stating an offset or any amounts – NOTHING. If you follow the prompts and enter your SS#, it will generally tell you to call US Dept. ED at 800-621-3115 and we did that – nothing from them either; seems like the IRS might not be working on our return. We even went as far to call the actual debt collection for the fed. student debt – they haven’t heard a peep either.

    Tried my luck calling the IRS too, again, and had both ladies refuse to look at anything since “it hasn’t been 11 weeks so we are still working on it, no, we can’t look it up and tell you anything yet…” Looks like filing early is biting us in the butt..

    No real update on my account except that our IS form was received 2/13. Beyond that nothing on my account. I did speak to a woman at the IRS that told me that if a decision is made that ends in getting some of the offset back the IRS only has a certain amount of time to pay up or they have to pay you interest. We filed our form by mail after e-filing the 1040. For us the amount of time before interest will be due is 56 days if I remember correctly, and I assume they mean only business days and not weekends or holidays ( they have 8 weeks from when the form is received).

    @V Hart:
    I completely understand your frustration. I finally got through to a lady last week and she absolutely refused to check my return until the 11 week mark. I’ve been looking up things and other forums online a lot, and it seems most people still can’t get an answer after 11weeks – they are told to try again in 30 days – I really hope that isn’t the case. How hard can it be to check for offsets, take whatever money necessary and refund the rest?!

    I’m stuck on my husband’s federal student loans as an offset, but we set up a payment plan last year and have been paying on time each month. Most of our refund is from having three dependents and my income, as I claim less for taxes on my pay checks.

    Well, I finally called the tax advocate who got me a direct line to an IRS lady, that was very rude, saying they wouldn’t have any information until it hit 11 weeks.

    I filed my taxes 1/29… it’s been up for processing since 2/2. I am in Cycle 20150505.

    #4109538 Reply


    @Everyone With A Spouse That Has Student Loan Debt

    I’ve noticed this is plaguing many of your returns. You should all consider having your spouse consolidate their student loans. That would take them out of default and no longer be an offset. Afterwards you can either get a forbearance or deferment to postpone payments, or even just send them what you can….if you send them even $10 a month….they can’t do anything. It shows you are making some sort of effort. Just a thought.

    #4109530 Reply


    Well that’s always an option but you would be missing out on tax breaks designed for married couples, that being said it is super annoying waiting for a refund your due but ive always heard better late than never. But you really gotta tell your hubby how you feel maybe he can get a job and pay his dues… In my case my wife owes about 60k in student loans but what can you do she looks great in a thong lol

    It’s just not right, I understand they have to make sure we aren’t getting any money someone else is owed but I make 100% of the income for our family. I am honestly thinking of divorcing my H so I don’t have to file IS anymore.

Have you heard anything more or had any luck? this is my first year filing injured spouse beings i didn’t know i had to until after i had already filed.

    This is just an update for everyone. My transcript updated a few days ago after I called the IRS and badgered them about it (although they will try to get rid of you by telling you to wait 14 weeks to call, I don’t have time for that we have bills to pay). I got a code 971, IS received 2/18/2015. From what I am seeing here, the IS is updated every Friday on the transcript. The WMR has no update and I don’t expect one since they seem to be so crowded this year. Hopefully I get the refund back soon, or at least I get regular updates.

    BTW my “as of” date on the transcript changed, does anyone know what that means?

    Yup, same thing here, Tanya. Exact same code 570, expect date 2/23/2015 and same cycle: 20150505. I filed mine 1/29 and was accepted that day.

    As long as the IRS is sticking to the same cycle code format as last year the codes can be broken down using the info below.

    The 1st 4 #s = year, next 2 #s = cycle week, last 2#s = day of the week

    Cycle weeks begin on Thursdays so the 1st Cycle week started on Thurs. Jan 8th, the 2nd cycle week would be Thurs. Jan. 15th, the 3rd would be Thurs Jan. 22 and so on.

    The days of the week are only business days starting with Thursday as the 1st day of the cycle week and ending with Wednesday as the 5th day. The last 2 digits will always be one of the following depending on the day of your deposit.
    01 – Thurs

    02 – Fri

    03 – Mon

    04 – Tues

    05 – Wed


    year – 2015

    04 – 4th cycle week (beginning Thurs. Jan. 29th – Fri Jan. 30th – Mon. Feb. 2nd – Tues. Feb 3rd – Wed. Feb 4th)

    05 – 5th day of cycle week 4 is Wed. Feb 4

    20150405 = 2/4/2015 direct deposit date.

    Sorry for this long winded explanation. Hope it helps.

    Hey everyone.

    I’ve never filed an Injured spouse form before this were. My husband and I were due back several thousand dollars this year. Apparently, it was all kept for a student loan debt that I was unaware of (my parents told me they “handled” it years ago). My husband made every dime of income this year. I haven’t worked since August of 2013.

    We filed it through the mail (tracking number confirms delivery on February 8th, 2015).

    How long do we have to wait before we hear ANYTHING? I’ve read it’s a minimum of 8 weeks before we can even get an update. How long do these usually take to go through?

    Thanks in advance. Good luck to all of you!

    Will, what if it’s a paper check? Do you know when that will be sent out? My wmr has never updated.

    Chaddox, your cycle date is 3-5 for ddd. Mine is the same. WMR updated this morning to say expect the ddd to be sent by 3-4.

    Hello all My name is Jeff and this is my first time filling IS. I have been watching my transcript for about a weeks and a half now. and Just yesterday i got that 971 saying they received my IS form. Normally how will it take from being received to refund? And since my wife made no income last year and the debt was in her name should i receive the whole refund?

    I have a new cycle days today, 20150805 and all my choices are present including the 846. I have looked everywhere for the breakdown of cycle dates. No luck. Can anyone here break down my cycle date?

    Jess – still no acceptance code :-(

    My return was offset on the 4th of February. ..transcript lists it as the 16th. Still holding at the offset code!!

    I have a question, feel I finally have somewhat of good news. I checked my transcript this morning, and I see the 846! But there’s another tc that I’ve not seen. Here’s what shows:

    Code Explanation of Transaction Cycle Date Amount
    150 Tax Return Filed 20150505 02-23-2015 $x,xxx.00
    806 W-2 or 1099 Withholding 04-15-2015 -$x,xxx.00
    570 Additional account action pending 02-23-2015 $0.00
    290 Additional Tax Assessed 20150805 03-16-2015 $0.00
    846 Refund Issued 03-16-2015 $x,xxx.00

    The 846 is my full amount \. I did file Injured spouse, my spouse had no income, and she had the debt. What is the 290 Code? And am I correct thinking my DDD is 3-5-15? Is this final now?

    I efiled my taxes along with injured spouse form and got accepted on 1/29. I’ve been stuck with a code 570 for weeks now, and when I call, all they tell me is my forms are waiting to be reviewed by the injured spouse department! I’m getting so frustrated seeing others who have filed after me get movement and me nothing! I made all the money last year, and my husband is the one with the debt…. =(

    I don’t understand how people that filed IS after me is getting their money already. My transcript has not updated in weeks..

    Since I made 100% of the income I was thinking I should receive all of our taxes back? But when I look at the Injured Spouse Form it has #15 Standard Deduction split between the two? Is this going to be an issue?

    #4109156 Reply


    my transcript updated today with injured spouse received 2/9 hoping that’s a sign things will start moving.

    Just posting this in case it helps anyone – my transcripts updated this morning. It is my understanding that injured spouse transcripts are updated every Friday morning. I have a refund code now, and I am getting the full amount back with a direct deposit date of March 5th. I e-filed my taxes on 2/2 with my IS form together. This was my first time doing that. Last two years I sent in a paper form separately and it took 3+ months. I will update back here once it actually gets deposited.
